Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

[quote]Like so much of Pelli's work, this is slick and anonymous. As a background building, it's acceptable; as an "addition" to our venerable southern transit hub, it remains a snooze...[/quote

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I was watching one guy work on that cage last week. Definitely cool stuff... the deck next to Cosi has a great view of the entire worksite!

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

The original proposal was hot garbage compared to what we're getting.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Sounds like you've nominated yourself, or do they have your number on the block callers list at this point?

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

I'm not in love with the design, but at least it's happening. The phasing is going to make SS suck for a long long time.

The head on view will probably be OK.

I guess our resident tower...

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

I can try. The south facade isn't on my usual route and I won't be in the area until later in the evening. The front looks more or less the same since the last time it showed up in the thread.

Re: Residences at Readville Station | 1717-1725 Hyde Park Ave | Hyde Park

I like it and it's a huge improvement for the area, but I wish the "autocourt" could be tucked away in the back against the tracks somehow so the street wall would be unbroken.

Re: The New Office Thread

Interesting... well who knew? I guess you folks did.

I'm a bit of a troglodyte when it comes to online shopping. For example, I only use Amazon maybe about once a year.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

It's to make you believe you have a voice. Gotta keep the illusion of transparency and democracy going in this day and age.

Re: Worcester Improvements

I really wonder how sustainable the patron traffic at some of these is gonna be... downtown just doesn't have enough people yet in my mind to support a ton of bars and restaurants but maybe that has...

Re: The archBoston Meetup Thread

It has been a really long time since we did one of these and I dropped the ball organizing it.

Thoughts on a time and place in the near-ish (1-2 out month) future? Red Hat in Beacon Hill?

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

If you think I'm a NIMBY because I don't want a skyscraper on every parcel you're as much of an idiot as I assumed.

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

Oh yea nothing says iconic like a fucking Amazon or Apple store. Are you just fucking trolling us at this point? A 400ft tower in center-left field? Jesus fucking Christ. Get a new god damned fetish...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

That intersection is terrible for pedestrians. I avoid it now and just use the bridge underpass.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

It's a shit proposal... hard to disagree with the BPA in that regard. I'm not sure what can be done though that will satisfy them?

Interesting that they will need to remove 450 bleacher seats for this...
